Abstract:

A preliminary hazard evaluation of AI3-70820-Ga was performed by means of laboratory animal studies using rats, rabbits, and guinea pigs. The technical grade compound caused mild primary skin irritation and mild corneal irritation. It did not cause any photoirritation, did not sensitize guinea pigs, and did not prove to be an acute ingestion hazard. It was recommended that AI3-70820-Ga, US Department of Agriculture Proprietary Compound, be approved for further testing as a candidate insect repellent. Author
